The Aussie attack

is looking toothless on this flat Sydney pitch. A real test for their pacers, let's see how good they are once the favorable conditions are taken away.
India are under scoreboard pressure, trailing by almost 500. I think this is where the likes of Pattinson and Siddle have a lot to prove. They have enough run buffer to go on an all out attack.
If they can't do it here, they are nothing special.

Best of luck to both teams

I think it might be worth it staying up for an extra half hour tonight to see Sachin get in to the 30s and then into the pavillion.

it's a good cricket wicket. if you bowl well, as the aussies have, there is something there for you, if you do not you will get hit. I don't think the indians bowled all that badly, they just came up against good batsmen who were determined, and dhoni's fied placings were hardly helpful

it would be amazing if india pulls off a draw. but that said, it was a similar trend in england, they bat so well on the tea session and next morning they fold like packs. Right now the pressure is on the batsman and they will have to score big runs or face dropping, so we will see a certain players play their heart out, but we need all to do that. we need gambhir and sach to batt till tea atleast and then laxman needs to contribute and after that we will be on safe hands. sachin needs to bat as if he he will be dropped if he fails. that is the only inspiration i think that will pull out the players best

Exactly viru... whether or not match ends on day 4 will be decided in the first session of play.
If we somehow survive it, this will boost any little chance of draw we have.

This wicket has really flattened out after the first day, it's completely dried up. I don't think you can claim either sides bowling is entirely useless considering the nature of the pitch. The Indians could still realistically hold on for the draw here, they will just have to bat extremely well.

it will also be a test for Nathan Lyon. Is he really a test spinner? we will see, although it would be harsh to judge him on his performance against the worlds best players of spin
